  1. Screwfix - chains

    that will come as a 2m length, it wont be screwfix staff who cut it. probably find it comes in a plastic pouch.
  2. 12 V socket

    12v is the nominal figure used for calculations and reference purposes, what your seeing is the actual system voltage. just the same way 230v and 415v are rarely what they say they are too.
  3. It's towards the front. Fairly straight forward to remove although much easier with the dipstick tube removed too.
  4. Focus Mk1 1600 Zetec

    Fuel filter doesn't need priming, it will fill up itself when you turn ignition on. A litre of fluid will be plenty to bleed the system. You'll be surprised at how little it actually takes. A stone chip bursting the clutch Pipework shouldn't drain the fluid from the brakes - the clutch is fed from higher up in the resevoir to make sure that a failure in the clutch system doesn't affect the brakes. I can't really answer about lowering the tank as I've never had to do it and it's not in front of me to look at lol.
  5. Engine swap

    Did you see the replacement engine running beforehand?
  6. Power plant out?

    Persistence always pays off, unless it's women related lol.
  7. Power plant out?

    As long as it's my own
  8. Power plant out?

    Size of big hammer are we going for this time Ian
  9. Power plant out?

    Same difference? lol
  10. Power plant out?

    The ball joints can often be quite tricky to remove but they will go. Get a bigger lever.
  11. You didnt happen to be travelling down the a9 earlier Fraser? Clocked a car same colour as yours with number plate on dashboard around 1:30
  12. Anyone help me on memory savers?

    If you have the radio code then I wouldn't be bothering with it.
  13. Cambelt thoughts

    From what I have here in my Autodate book, you engine is only 1.8 hours book time.
  14. Cambelt thoughts

    What engine do you have? just realised it may be different one to what I quoted.. personally, I wouldn't be too stressed about getting it done just now but each to their own.
  15. Cambelt thoughts

    i have done 3 lately, all 3 have chosen not to replace water pump so parts (timing belt kit and both auxiliary drive belts come to £60. Note that the water pump is not cambelt driven but it is tucked behind it. Labour wise it's 2.8 hours book time so whatever your garage would charge for 3 hours labour.
